JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed fourth-round draft pick Ace Sanders to a contract.

Sanders agreed to terms last week, but inked his rookie deal Monday.

A receiver/punt returner from South Carolina, Sanders was the 101st overall selection in April's NFL draft. The 5-foot-7 speedster finished his college career with 99 receptions for 1,230 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also averaged 11.2 yards on 53 punt returns and scored three touchdowns. He had a career-high 45 catches for 531 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior last season and ranked fourth nationally in punt returns, averaging 15.3 yards.

With Sanders under contract, the Jaguars have one unsigned draft pick remaining - Florida safety Josh Evans. Evans was a sixth-round pick.

Jacksonville opens training camp July 26.
